SIRE: Mr Supreme
Heritage: >3/4 Peruvian / Chilean
Is there room for me ? In 2011 LuLu had her first cira, and she is proving to be a wonderful mother. She also seems to be taking after her own mother in the milk department, and in her willingness to nurse cira that are not hers.
Several exceptional and well known lines have come together to produce this stunning proven alpaca who has become one of the pillars of our breeding program.
Her sire, Mr Supreme, is the grandson of Ppperuvian El Moustachio, (The "Original" El Moustachio), who was a direct import from the renown Accoyo herd in Peru.
The Accoyo bloodlines are known for adding density and crimp to the fleece. Due to the denseness of fibre and the fact that the Accoyo animals tended to be larger than average in size, while other major alpaca breeders were reporting optimal fleece weights of 7-9 pounds, the Accoyo herd was reporting single alpaca fleece of 12-15 pounds! The first Accoyos were imported to the United States from Peru in 1994, where they began to forever positively influence the genetics of the North American alpaca herds.
Her grandfather is the well know herdsire DLA Peruvian Pastoro. Known for his amazing density and coverage, as well as his calm temperament, Pastoro's offspring consistently took ribbons in show rings. Pastoro was the son of 2 amazing alpacas. Pperuvian Vengador and Pperuvian Puka Pollera.
Pperuvian Vengador is another direct Accoyo import well known to most in the alpaca business and whose genes and progeny are a huge part of the foundation herd in North America.
Pperuvian Puka Pollera, an outstanding female import, also left her mark on the North American alpaca industry. Puka was imported from the Conchatanca herd in Peru and produced some of the most sought–after alpacas in North America. The Conchatanca herd produced some of the finest and densest alpacas ever found making animals from this region highly treasured. Her sons DLA Peruvian Thunderbolt and DLA Peruvian Pastoro became extraordinary herdsires and their offspring have been winning in the show ring for years.
And finally, Solar de Peru, her great-grandfather, has his own legacy. From the Alianza region, another famous alpaca region of Peru, this herdsire passed on his superior genetics, conformation, and fiber to each of his offspring. His owner noted, in particular, how Solar de Peru "passes on fiber filled faces, dense topknots and crimpy fiber with long staple length". Solar de Peru's dam Ppperuvian Sunflower, was an import from the third Peruvian importation. Solar was owned and used as a herdsire at Driscoll Alpacas in Canada where he was referred to as "a top breeding stud". Solar is the father of the first registered twins born in North America.
